Synopses & Reviews
When Liddell Hart's Sherman was first published in 1929, it received encomiums such as these:
"A masterly performance . . . one of the most thorougly dignified, one of the most distinguished biographies of the year."--Henry Steele Commager, New York Herald Tribune
"It is not often that one comes upon a biography that is so well done as this book. Nearly every page bears evidence of the fact that it is the product of painstaking and exhaustive research, mature thought, and an expert understanding of the subject in hand . . ."--Saturday Review of Literature
Liddell Hart considered General Sherman the dominant military genius of the Civil War; to prove his point, he traced Sherman's military campaigns, from the first Bull Run debacle to General Joseph Johnston's surrender in 1865.
